The Managerial Flow framework (MFF) was designed to facilitate improved implementation of public policies through proactive management of planning, governance, selection, partnership, and knowledge gaps (Vecchi & Brusoni, 2012). As expounded by the framework, this is achieved through undertaking managerial decisions and actions that generate managerial assets. For the purpose of this research, the MFF was used as a lens to analyze a planning gap and the implementation of an innovation policy through an emergent enabling strategy. The enabling strategy formed part of a broader economic development plan developed by a substantive Australian local government authority (LGA).
